Why do I need to service my Air Conditioning?

Car air conditioning systems need servicing approximately every two years. The main reason for this is to change the receiver dryer (filter) which collects moisture in the system because this will eventually turn corrosive if not removed (very similar to the engine oil filter).

Some systems lose a small amount of refrigerant over time so servicing replaces this, tops up the lubricant and recycles the existing refrigerant to new specification.

The service involves discharging all refrigerant, recycling this and recharging the system with the correct amount of refrigerant and oil to lubricate all parts including the compressor pump.

We add dye to make any future leak detection easier to locate and pressure test the complete system.
